Importing and Exporting Fee Schedules

To help maintain consistent fees across offices that do not share databases, you can export fee schedules, and import them into other databases as needed. Exported tables are saved as .TXT files, which can then be shared with other offices or databases via the import function.

To export fee schedules from benefit tables:

  1. Select File > Maintenance > Import/Export Fee Schedules > Export fee schedules. The Export Fee Schedules window is displayed with the name and path of the export file you are creating.

  2. Select the fee schedules to include in the export file, along with a description for each.

  3. Click Export Fees. When the process is complete, an "Export Successful" message is displayed.

  4. Click OK.

  5. After you export the tables, the folder will contain the following file: ExportedFeeSchedules.txt

    Copy this file to a portable drive or other folder where it can be accessed for importing.
